Melange Family

ONE IDENTITY. DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES. 

Form. Function. Freedom. Public spaces involves a series of questions for property owners, principal clients, architects, interior decorators and designers. Questions regarding the nature of business, purpose and well-being. But also quality, comfort and acoustics. And, last but not least, aesthetics. Melange Family consists of three different rugs – the woven Macro and Häggå and the tufted Loop – united by the delightful natural aura created by the kinship of the material. Adding the dimension of the generous color palette they offer magnificent opportunities to create harmony and compliance in and between spaces.

 

CORRECT CONTEXT

The floor is inevitably a common denominator for us all. Thanks to gravity. Melange Family is available in three different qualities as wall to wall or area rugs, offering a wide array of expressions while maintaining the overall atmosphere. A versatile rug family range, highly matchable for office spaces, lounges, conference facilities, restaurants, hotels etc., whenever context is relevant. Which it always is.

DIVERSE. BUT UNIFIED.

UNIQUE MATERIAL

Kasthall’s unique melange wool holds visual and functional properties that, woven or tufted, are well suited for public spaces. The wool is characterized by beautiful natural shades in shifting hues, resulting in an organic and subtle expression. Furthermore, it is fire retardant and possesses a dirt repellant quality that simplifies maintenance.

 

LOUD AND LOW-KEY

Melange Family is a collection with strong character and pronounced identity. They demand their place, but the also know their place. Together, the dense construction and the full-bodied yarn add efficient sound absorbant qualities.

CONTEMPORARY COLORS

Originating in the naturally grey shaded melange wool, Melange Family offers a color concept that facilitates and simplifies the work of architects and interior designers. With the rug being the foundation, and the colors the spicing, one is able to convey different temperaments and moods within a single space, throughout different sections of a larger area or even connect spaces within a multistorey complex. Kasthall’s unmistakable attention to color is represented by a multitude of organic soft natural hues, presenting a number of options and combinations for different contexts.

 

THE DIFFERENT FACES OF SUSTAINABILITY.

Sustainability is a word that carries double meanings with Melange Family: Environmental awareness and exceptionally long lived products. Scandinavian design and manufacturing results in firmly controlled production process. For Häggå and Loop, the yarn is dyed at a dyehouse not far from our factory in Kinna. For these two qualities, we use exclusively the finest wool originating from New Zealand. For Macro Melange, the wool is a mix from both New Zeeland and Great Britain. The wool is natural material from renewable sources and has superior durability.

HÄGGÅ MELANGE

A shaft woven area or wall-to wall rug with a semi-flat character. A perfect foundation for any space, public or private.  Or as a complement to Macro, accenting a defined area or desired mood. It’s superior durability and soft roughness makes for versatile functionality and disruptive interior design effects. The variety of patterns and colors offers great creative freedom and endless possibilities. Not forgetting the full-bodied yarn’s ability to absorb sound, thus creating relaxed – yet elegant - atmospheres.

LOOP MELANGE

A hand tufted bouclé rug made of semi-coarse hair yarn.

The raw cut edge adds an honest and pure expression to this made-to-measure rug. Superior durability and possibility to manufacture Loop in almost any desired shape makes Loop a very versatile rug in both public and private spaces.

MACRO MELANGE

A woven wall-to-wall bouclé carpet with a dense wool texture and flat character.  Ideal for public spaces. Not only for its durability and ability to withstand strain, but also for its acoustic qualities and wide range of colors. An elegant ribbed pattern and a mottled texture creates a lively visual expression, while providing a tasteful unobtrusive backdrop for larger contexts. Can also be delivered with stitched edges, in any size or shape you require.
